• The Community Curator program invites representatives from community groups in the Rochester region to curate film screenings using VSW’s collection of over 10,000 film and video titles.  Participants in the program work with the Curator of Moving Image Collections to research and select a full program of films that speak to the interests of the group, while opening a broader dialog with the Rochester community. The goals of the Community Curator program are to empower cultural organizations to create their own media programming, expand global and cultural awareness within the Rochester community, and strengthen ties between students, artists, and communities that will cultivate and advance multi-cultural relationships.

    Programs take place in the VSW Microcinema and/or stream on VSW.ORG for 3-4 weeks.

    For more information, or to inquire about becoming a Community Curator, contact Tara Nelson, Curator of Moving Image Collections: taranelson@vsw.org.

    The VSW Film Series and Community Curator Program are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by the ArtWorks program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
